The EEOC alleges in a lawsuit against Wayne Farms, a poultry-processing company, that its attendance policy results in injured workers being fired. That's a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
It sounds like malpractice to me. That’s what I’ve been thinking ever since learning how the injuries sustained by poultry workers are treated (and not treated) at the company nursing stations.
OSHA found what I'd call medical malpractice going on at a nursing station at a Wayne Farms poultry processing plant. The agency called them on it in a letter to firm's operations manager.
After more than a decade, OSHA used its "general duty clause" to issue citations to a poultry processing firm for ergonomic hazards.
Nine poultry workers filed safety and whistleblower complaints with the Labor Department against the country's fifth largest poultry company and the temp staffing agency that hired some of them.
